We are team green and not finding out baby’s gender till he/she arrives, but want to have a boy name and a girl name ready just in case
We have had middle names chosen for months (grandparent names for tradition) and have had a boy name agreed upon for a few weeks but having the toughest time with a girl name! I have 2 step daughters who both have first names that are 2 parts (made up to make a new name...don’t get me started! Plus a middle name so between those 3 names, a lot that I have liked are automatically ruled out...
Basically I want a name that is not common but without being weird. My husband and I both like the “E” nicknames like Ellie/Emma/Ella/Emmy... I know everyone keeps saying they are too popular right now but I work with kids and don’t know any! Plus for us, that would just be the nickname, so we are trying to find pretty names that we like to shorten to those. I’m open to suggestions but doubt anyone has one I haven’t seen yet- been at this for months! lol
Current ones we are considering...
Elora Mae (nn Ellie)
Elanora Mae (nn Ella)
Emmeline Mae (nn Emmy)
Elara Mae (nn Ellie)
Oh and Elora is my #1 right now but my sister in laws name is Laura...even though the 2 really are very different names with different meanings, is it too similar?? :-/
Also side note, does anyone when they hear Ellie Mae, automatically think of Beverly Hillbillies?? 🤦🏻♀️ That’s another concern...
